Robert Frost's My November Guest
"My November Guest" by Robert Frost was the poem that intrigued me the most for it's imposing image of Sorrow, and my seasonal fascination of November. By the way Frost introduces Sorrow as his November companion, he infuses Her with life and profound emotion that establishes a sensation of witnessing November's beauty together. From the many present literary devices Frost uses, one of the most compelling devices is Sorrow's personification. Frost's strong personification of Sorrow evokes within Her a deep emotion that conveys Her deep astonishment with November. She is able to see, hear, speak, and move as autumn does. And through all of these human qualities, Sorrow is allowed this connection that only autumn's beauty exudes.
